The Hambrick Family Not-So-Bummer-Summer List 2012

By | 7:01 AM 4 comments

Last summer I was very very very pregnant and consumed with Eli's surgery, transitioning to a new church, job, and house.
Needless to say...I was quite the fuddy-dud.

I am in a completely different place this summer and very excited about it. Survival mode and Mommy fuddy-dud no more!

With the ending of school, I wanted to create a list with the kids of things they/we wanted to do this summer. All of us are excited to see if we can knock everything off the list.

Therefore, without further ado, our 2012 Hambrick Summer of Fun list:

  • Go to a baseball game.
  • Roast smore's.
  • Have a lemonade stand.
  • Make an outside obstacle course.
  • Go to the beach.
  • Make a movie.
  • Go camping.
  • Make a bird feeder.
  • Throw a block party.
  • Tie-dye.
  • Read 100+ books (Ella's goal)
  • Keep a summer journal.
  • Map our neighborhood.
  • See fireworks.
  • Make homemade ice-cream.
  • Learn the alphabet in sign-language.
  • Fly a kite.
  • Catch lightning bugs.
  • Make up "God loves you" bags for the homeless and give them out.
  • Get sno-cones at Pelican's sno-balls.
  • See a movie at a theatre.
  • Go hiking.
  • Make orange juice.
  • Go to an amusement park.
  • Pick blueberries.
  • Plant flowers.
  • Camp out.
  • Make homemade bread.
  • Go to a local VBS.
  • Ride a slip-and-slide.
  • Write 10 letters to friends and family.
It was fun to see what each kid was interested in and most excited about doing: Ella was all about making a movie and the lemonade stand, Eli was all about the ice-cream and seeing a movie in the theatre, and Ezra contributed the orange juice, blueberry, and sno-cone ideas!

What fun things are you excited about for this Summer? I'd love to hear!

Maybe the Hambricks can join the Villeneuves for a campout. It has been on our 'to do' list for a while now. Smores included of course!

You also need to add lots of visits to NaNa and Paw Paw's :)

We have 4 extra tickets to a baseball game this Saturday night at 7. You're welcome to have them if you want them. Let me know if you're interested and I'll send you the details.
I'm loving your fun filled summer :)
